Lemmings: Watch Out for that Cliff!

With the the Republican Congressional caucus sniffing Rush's panties; they are about to become exactly what Tom Delay dreamed of: an ideologically pure caucus so far out on the fringes of the Right they'll make Newt look like a centrist. They will lose the votes of New England Republicans and possibly Lugar and a few others in the Senate on many important issues. In the House, with so few moderate Republicans left it's hard to say how many will see the light before they go all lemming and run over the cliff with Rush and Gingrey.

If the Republicans were actually arguing the merits of the stimulus program rather than coming up with phony BS from a CBO "report" that did not exist, and just plain lying, they might be a worthy opposition party. Instead they seem content to be villains in a Keystone Cop movie.
